The Wizard of Oz is estimated to have been seen by more people than any other movie in history. But if you think you know the story of the land of Oz, think again. Years before Dorothy went looking for a great wizard, the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good were just two spirited girls. Wicked tells the untold story of these two famous friends. You can catch it in downtown Spokane May 18–29 at the INB Performing Arts Center.
This popular Broadway musical has won 35 major awards, including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Entertainment Weekly called it the best musical of the decade, and the Spokane tour stop is your only chance to see it in Washington state in 2011, so order your tickets soon! Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 5 at the INB Performing Arts Center only at 7 a.m. The first 100 people in line will receive a free Wicked gift.
